Images of El Salvador

These photos were taken during seven summers that I spent  in El Salvador between 1989 and 1996. I worked as a teacher, an organizer, and advisor with various groups there, including COMADRES (the mothers of the disappeared) ANDES ( the teachers' union) and the FMLN (the rebels during the civil war, now a political party).  They are intended to show conditions and groups that were or still are present there; I hope that you'll feel free to use these images in whatever way you wish...they're here to be shared and used for any purpose.
